The accused person is facing three counts charge ranging from Murder, contrary to law, Careless and Inconsiderate Driving and Causing Death by Dangerous Driving, which contravene Section (99) sub Section (1) of the Road Traffic Act No.5 of 2007.

The State claimed that the accused person Dr. Sahr Fillie allegedly committed the said offences on Sunday 28 October 2018 at Furniture Junction, Allen Town in the Freetown Judicial District in the Western Area of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

He is alleged to have driven a motor vehicle with Registration Number: AGJ 199 dangerously on the road and thereby caused the death of Kadijatu Fillie.

The State further alleged that the accused person Dr. Sahr Fillie drove without Consideration for Persons Using the Road and also Drove a Motor Vehicle in a Careless and Inconsiderate Manner.

Court record also indicated that the alleged killing of Kadijatu Fillie by her husband Dr. Sahr Fillie is not unconnected to long-drawn unresolved matrimonial crisis, which resulted to the death of Kadijatu Fillie that fateful Sunday 28 October 2018.

Dr. Sahr Fillie who is fifty two years old and resides at No.3 Green Drive, Orugu village, Allen Town was arrested by the police sometime in October last year and subsequently detained at the Criminal Investigation Department Headquarter at Pademba Road in Freetown.

When the matter came up for hearing before the presiding Magistrate Santigie Bangura, on Thursday 10th January this year, the prosecution could not produce a single witness to testify.

The charge sheet also revealed that the investigating police officers obtained statements from five witnesses including the accused person, but however the prosecution promised the Bench that they will expedite efforts to bring forward their witnesses on the next adjourned date.

Accused Dr. Sahr Fillie was represented by Barrister J. M. Jengo, M.Y. Kanu, A. Konuwah and I. Macfoy, while the matter was prosecuted by Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP Eric Deen.

Magistrate Santigie Sorie Bangura adjourned the matter to Tuesday 15th January 2019.
